List any photographic equipment for sale or trade. Please note in the title of your post whether an item is for sale (FS), for trade (FT), or want to buy (WTB). Be vigilant for scammers. Check the post history of the person who you are buying from, and stick to payment options like PayPal (not Friends and Family) that offers buyer and seller protections. As always, buy and sell at your own risk. If a sale is too good to be true, it usually isn't true.
